Toilet Twinning

 

At the Biggin Hill Festival, Toilet Twinning was the theme for the display provided by St Mark’s Church.

Children and their parents were able to learn about Toilet Twinning, where you can "twin" your own toilet with latrines in poor communities. For the sum of £60, Toilet Twinners receive a certificate, containing a photo of the twinned latrine, its location and GPS coordinates.

Earlier this year the members of St Mark’s Church made collections for Toilet Twinning, raising nearly £500 which not only twins all the toilets at St Mark’s with 4 individual toilets in developing countries, but also covers a block of toilets in a school.

The aim is for Biggin Hill to become a Toilet Twinned town. For this, at least 20 twinned toilets are needed across a variety of buildings open to the public, for example cafés, restaurants, shops. Councillors Julian Benington and Melanie Stevens have promised their support in promoting the project in Biggin Hill.
